JEE Advanced last minute preparation TipsJEE Advanced 2018 last minute preparation Tips - For JEE candidates, the real litmus test starts now. It is because unlike JEE Main, questions will be more concept oriented that will test the candidates’ understanding of the fundamentals and ability to come up with resourceful answers. Many don’t call the exam an elimination test for nothing as it exploits every weakness the candidate has. Faced with an adversary like this, one can’t afford to put a foot wrong or make the mistake of taking things for granted. A mantra then adopted by many candidates to succeed in the exam is to start their JEE Advanced preparation early and slog hard. It surely is a recipe for success, but how things pan out also depends on how the child handles the last few days leading to the exam. Remember, exam anxiety peaks at this stage and missteps do happen, sometimes enough to derail a campaign. That is why we thought of chipping in with some last minute preparation tips for JEE Advanced 2018 that will help the candidate get over the line.

Know your Admission chances through JEE Advanced, Paper-2, BITSAT and JEE Main

  • Don’t study any new topics – As it is the time to get ready for execution of what you have learned. If you start a new topic at this stage, it will take up a few hours or even a day, which you simply can’t afford. So, put a full stop to any new topics that you haven’t touched before. Instead, try to maximize what you have already studied.

  • Save time by sticking to notes – If you have made notes of the important points, read them. It will save you the trouble of having to go through large blocks of irrelevant text unless you really need to.

  • Revise, revise, revise – The importance of revision can hardly be over emphasised. It is because the more your revise, the more what you are studying will become second nature. And if it becomes second nature, the solutions would come out your brain without you being putting any effort. For effective revision, make sure that the time lag between successive revision is not too much; this way things will stay fresh in your mind and revision will be a breeze.

  • Solve sample and previous years’ papers – If you have been following the news lately, you must be up to date with the controversy that erupted over some questions created by a coaching institute being repeated in JEE Main. If you solve enough JEE Advanced sample and question papers, such easy pickings may present themselves before you. And even if they don’t, you will have enough fire-power and confidence to cut down to size anything that is thrown at you.

  • Get familiar with the online exam – This year for the first time the entrance exam will be conducted in complete online mode. As such, it is not a bad idea to take the JEE Advanced mock test, as it will help you get familiar with the functionalities of the exam. This in turn will help you save a few seconds or minute that you can utilize to solve that extra question. Familiarity with the exam will also help you get over exam jitters.

  • Take rest in between preparation: Many of us have the habit of slogging for extended hours as exam day looms. This is not advisable as it will extinguish your pool of energy and might also drag your spirit. Instead in these last few days, you must take timely breaks, drink sufficient water and take timely sleep. Sleep deprivation is in fact one of the main reasons why many candidates falter in exams despite having decent preparation. So to avoid any exam day blues, sleep you full quota of hours and wake up rejuvenated.

  • Finally plan for exam day – A simple thing like reaching the exam centre on time would ensure your nerves are not all over the place. Also, check out what all stuff you will need on exam day – admit card, photo id card, or any other document. Electronic gadgets, written texts, log tables, packaged eatables, etc. are not allowed inside the exam hall. Last year, candidates had to carry with them items like pencils, erasers, and black ball point pen. But since from this year the exam is conducted in online mode, these items are inessential.

Follow the JEE Advanced 2018 last minute preparation tips mentioned above, and you will be able to stay a step ahead of your competitor!
